Establishment of National Registry System for Domestic Emissions Trading Scheme and Voluntary Carbon Emission Reduction Project Phase IIInvitation to Bids

In order to address climate change effectively and efficiently, China has launched the National Carbon Emission Trading System (ETS) by the end of 2017. In order to fulfill the key tasks prior to its launch, the General Office of the National Development and Reform Commission issued the Notice on key work to start the national carbon emissions trading market (NDRC Climate [2016] No. 57), which focuses on the assignment of accounting, reporting and verification of historical GHG emission from 2013 to 2015 among nearly 8,000 enterprises in major emission industries including petrochemical, chemical, engineering materials, steel, nonferrous metals, papermaking, electric power and aviation, etc.

According to incomplete statistics, approximately 300 third-party verification bodies participated in the nationwide verification of historical GHG emission with the authorization and entrustment of the charging authorities of Provinces, Autonomous Regions and Municipalities, which assisted local authorities in successfully obtaining the historical GHG emissions data logged into the enterprises’ database, effectively promoting the development of the National ETS. However, during the implementation of verification, there are still many problems such as the lack of capacity of third-party verification bodies, imperfect internal management system documents, conflicts of potential interests within the verified parties, as well as inferior quality of reports, which seriously affect the accuracy of verification data, accordingly endangering the healthy development of the National ETS.

The Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system is a crucial part supporting the National ETS, which determines the data quality control and assurance. Specifically, verification is the key step of emission data transmission and confirmation from emission enterprises to those departments in charge. The impartiality, quality control and assurance level of third-party verification bodies and verification capability are directly related to the quality and accuracy of GHG emission data. Therefore, it is necessary to establish and promote the supervision and management mechanism of the third-party verification bodies in the domestic carbon market, set stringent antecedent access and strict post supervision to ensure the sound development of the National ETS.
